Let “Julia” Bring Unique Francophile Fun, Fine Dining and Frivolity To Your Holiday Soiree
Guests at dinner parties all over the Metroplex—as those throughout California’s Southern Valley already have done—will be doing a double take this holiday season: Can it possibly be they are hearing the distinct Sherry-tinged voice of Julia Childs, the Grande Dame of French cuisine, who put boeuf bourguignon on millions of American dinner tables? As West Coast foodies will attest, all doubt will fade when they are greeted by a high-heeled and white-aproned vision, who declares, “This evening, you will be dining on some of my most famous gastronomic masterpieces, so please be seated and Que Le Repas Commence!” as a slightly too tall chef with an-all-too-familiar cadence gleefully guides diners toward the first of many memorable dining experiences.
“Julia” Wows Audiences, Keeps Guests Guessing
“Dinner With Julia” by Tru Celebrations is the latest catering import from the Coast to land in D/FW. Helmed by longtime Texas entrepreneur and Dallas native Truett Griffin, owner of Tru Celebrations Catering and Special Events, the “Julia” dinner parody has been a hit with West Coast audiences for more than 15 years. He now brings “Julia” back to his hometown, which, according to Griffin, was one of the real Julia’s favorite stops on her 1999 food tour in which judged chocolate cake at the State Fair of Texas. “Eat moderately,” she advised her new Texas fans, “You can eat butter, you can eat whole foods such as cream, you can eat barbecue and you should, but just don’t eat barbecue alone. Enjoy everything, but do it in moderation. After all, this is Texas, the land of plenty!”
Guests at a “Julia” dinner party step back in time when formal dinner parties were de rigueurfor important family, friends or clients. Guests are treated to five or seven courses, not only enjoying dishes inspired by the famous chef but also the spot-on parody of the iconic epicurean’s passion for butter, cream and, of course, cooking sherry! “Guests are delighted by the menu and Julia’s hilarious performance, interspersed with fascinating stories regarding the preparation and menu,” say former clients, who kept “Julia” on their speed dials for important client dinners.
“What an AMAZING evening!” raves one client, who hosted a 70-person outdoor affair. “Not only did “she” and her staff cook and serve a spectacular seven-course dinner, she entertained throughout the evening in full character and voice. My friends still ask when are we doing it again?’” Another client, who hosted three “Julia” parties agrees: “Every time, Truett, I mean ‘Julia,’ has provided a delightful evening. His impression is spot-on and the attire – well, it speaks for itself – Julia is in the house!”
Truett & Big Tex
Local foodies can meet the man behind the French apron at this year’s State Fair of Texas, where Chef Tru has been juggling food judging duties and cooking demonstrations. Earlier this month, he judged chili and BBQ ribs, pies and hors d’oeuvres. Next up, he’ll showcase a cooking demonstration at 4:30 p.m. Oct.15 on the Celebrity Chef Demo Stage in the Creative Arts Pavilion.
